Megyn Kelly Calls Nancy Pelosi on her Hobby-Lobby Sexist Rant

Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 12, 2014

In typical Progressive fashion, the Left has attacked the Supreme Court’s justices personally and with false facts for a decision the Left disagrees with.  In the “Hobby Lobby” decision, the Court found that small, privately-owned companies whose owners have strong religious beliefs otherwise cannot be forced to pay for 4 out of 20 birth-control methods required under Obamacare.  Those four methods in essence abort a fertilized egg.

The Court neither outlawed any method of birth control nor stopped a woman’s right to obtain them.  It merely removed from small, privately owned companies the obligation to pay for these certain methods of birth control that go against their “strongly-held” religious beliefs.

The outcry from some on the Left is not only outrageous, but also telling as exemplified by the rent posted below by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in a commentary by Megyn Kelly.  Here are some of the outrageous quotes from Pelosi:

“We should be afraid of this Court that five guys should start determining what contraception’s are legal or not.”The problem with this quote, the Court did not outlaw any form of contraception.

“That court decision was a frightening one, that five men should get down the specifics of whether women should use a diaphragm.” The problem with this quote, the court made no mention of a diaphragm.

The question raised by Ms. Pelosi’s outrageous rant is whether she is purposely misleading the public, i.e. lying, or is she ignorant.

Jon Stewart Laughs at Nancy Pelosi

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 31, 2014

While a liberal, John Stuart will often do not let his politics interfere with common sense.  Stewart showed this recently during interview with Nancy Pelosi.  When asked why the government could not hire an organization to execute on the Obamacare website competently Pelosi incredibly answered that she didn’t know.  Stewart couldn’t handle that response and lost it, laughing hysterically at the Minority Leader.  See approximately 3 minutes into the video clip that is linked below.

The remainder of the Pelosi interview offers insight as to why government is often incompetent.  Let us remember that one time Ms. Pelosi was third in line to be president of the United States.  Yikes!

Pelosi’s Excuses for Obamacare

Posted by Steve Markowitz on November 18, 2013

Nancy Pelosi was grilled this past weekend by NBC’s David Gregory on Meet the Press concerning the Obamacare fiasco and her responsibility for its failure.  This included her repeated failed promise concerning Obamacare and the People’s ability to keep their insurance if they were satisfied with it.

The video below shows Gregory being a pit bull during the interview, which is remarkable for two reasons.  Pelosi is clearly stuttering and looking for excuses, but with no logical answer.  In addition, as a full-blooded member of the mainstream liberal media, Gregory’s aggressive approach is an example of how much credibility Barack Obama has lost in recent months.  It is hard to conceive how such a once powerful and popular president has squandered so much so quickly.

Pelosi Calls Obama Brilliant and nonpartisan

Posted by Steve Markowitz on September 26, 2013

Pelosi Calls Obama Brilliant and nonpartisan

There are many words and phrases that can be used to describe Barack Obama.  “Politically astute”, “handsome”, “liberal”, “eloquent speaker” are some reasonable ones.

Nancy Pelosi in the video posted below described President Obama in different terms when asked why Republicans oppose many of his policies.

“You know why it is.  He’s brilliant –he thinks in a strategic way in how to get something done – and he’s completely eloquent.  That’s a package that they don’t like.

He has been … open, practically apolitical, certainly nonpartisan, in terms of welcoming every idea and solution.  I think that’s one of the reasons the Republicans want to take him down politically – because they know he is a nonpartisan president, and that’s something very hard for them to cope with.”

The President’s strategic capabilities have clearly not been stellar.  How has his plan on the economy work so far?  Obama’s strategy in the Middle East has been a dismal failure.

As for Obama’s supposed “nonpartisan” nature, that Pelosi claim of is so ridiculous that it is hard to take seriously.  Obama has been the most partisan president in modern times.  He blames the Republicans for every issue negatively impacting the Country and never takes responsibility for his own failures.

The scary issue is that Ms. Pelosi’s may actually believe what she says about Barack Obama.

Nancy Pelosi’s Uses 5-year Old as an Excuse for Attacking Syria

Posted by Steve Markowitz on September 4, 2013

Nancy Pelosi once again showed herself to be an intellectual lightweight.  In the video below Pelosi discusses a supposed discussion she had with her five-year old grandchild in a contorted explanation of her support of Obama’s desire to attack Syria.  Ignoring for a moment the lame overall approach of bringing a five–year old into the argument, she justifies an attack on Syria based on that country’s use of chemical weapons on its own people.  How disingenuous.  This is the same Pelosi who excoriated George W. Bush for his decision attack Iraq, a country that used chemical weapons to kill many times the number of civilians.  More Liberal logic.

Pelosi Shows Constitutional Ignorance

Posted by Steve Markowitz on November 16, 2012

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has proven her intellectual skills to be light on many occasions.  When she was House Leader, as an example, she indicated that Congress would have to pass the Obamacare legislation in order to know what was included within it.

Blog reader Jim has sent in a video of Ms. Pelosi’s news conference this week, posted below, that shows her outdoing even her low standard.  During a response to one of the reporter’s questions, Pelosi shows a complete lack of knowledge of the U.S. Constitution stating: “Is it the 11th Amendment?  14th? Whatever … I’m With the Constitution”.  While it is comforting to know that Pelosi stands with the Constitution, it’s scary to recall that she was once third line for running the Country.  Yikes!

Pelosi Claims Jewish Voters Exploited by Republicans

Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 30, 2012

While running for the presidency, President Obama promised “hope and change”, i.e. getting beyond racial divisions and red/blue states differences.  Instead, he has proven to be the most divisive president of modern time and has deepened the divide between blacks and whites, gays and straights, Hispanics and Anglos, Left and Right, and other subcategories of Americans created by the Progressive Left.

The divider-chief’s tactics are also used by other Leftists.  This weekend House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi went on the offensive during an interview on Bloomberg.  The subject was a trend of Jewish voters going against Obama.  Pelosi started her rant stating: “I think [Obama] will.  I think that he will, because the fact is when the facts get out.  You know, as many of the Republicans are using Israel as an excuse, what they really want are tax cuts for the wealthy.  So Israel, that can be one reason they put forth.”  How this wingback connects Israel and “tax cuts for the wealthy” goes beyond any semblance of logic.

After spouting her lame logic, Pelosi then said: “Well, that’s how they’re being exploited.  And they’re smart people.”  Forgetting for a moment the condescending tone used, intelligent people generally are difficult to exploit.

Nancy Pelosi is a poster child for what is wrong with American politics.  She is divisive and lacking of logic.  As long as such people hold power in Washington, real progress on the Country’s significant issues will not be obtained.

Pelosi’s Backtrack on Romney Tax Returns Shows Duplicity

Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 20, 2012

The Obama campaign organization is in full attack mode of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.  That is of little surprise for a politician from Chicago and Obama’s failed policies.

There are two main issues currently involved in the attack; outsourcing and Romney’s tax returns.  Outsourcing is focused on whether Romney was involved in Bain Capital at the time they may have outsourced American jobs to other countries.  This is a red herring on various levels.  First, Romney clearly was not involved with running or managing Bain Capital during the time in question.  He was working full-time on the Olympics in Salt Lake City.  Further, the Obama Administration has the gall to raise an issue that they themselves have been heavily involved with.  Not only has the President outsourced to foreign countries massive projects under the Stimulus spending program, but he appointed Jeffrey Immelt of General Electric to head his Jobs team.  General Electric has outsourced tens of thousands of jobs, some during the time period that Immelt has been part of the Obama team.

As for the tax return issue, Romney released his returns for the last couple of years with the Obama campaign team pushing for 10 more years of returns.  Pressing Romney for transparency is incredible.  Obama has refused to release seemingly benign documents such as his college transcripts.  He also refuses to release any information on how his education was paid for or how he afforded his various world travels as a young man.

This week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi added an explanation point to the Democrat’s disingenuous position on Romney’s tax returns.  As the Roll Call reported, earlier this week Pelosi was on the bandwagon calling for Romney to release the returns.  She is now taking another view stating: “We spent too much time on that.  We should be talking about middle-income tax cuts.”

No, Ms. Pelosi has not become a Romney supporter.  Instead this is a showing of preservation.  A report released by McClatchy News now indicates that only 17 of 535 members of Congress released their tax returns when asked.  If, as the Democrats suggest, Romney has something to hide by not releasing his tax returns, then to do most of the members of Congress.  That is a direction that Pelosi does not want to travel.

Nancy Pelosi’s Daughter Shows Superior Intellect

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 19, 2012

Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Alexandra, is a freelance journalist who sometimes works with Bill Maher.  While one might expect the combination of these two will result in only Leftist dribble, Alexandra Pelosi has shown superior intellect and common sense than that of her mother.

Earlier this month Alexandra showed a clip on Maher’s show that included brief interviews with some Southerners who were fairly characterized as rednecks.  The folks interviewed were lacking in certain logic skills and intellectual capabilities.  Not surprisingly, in the show it was brought out that Mississippi is a Republican state, which allowed Bill Maher and his Leftist audience to have some good laughs.

After the laughs subsided, Maher then did something he since likely regretted.  He invited young Pelosi to come up with a video that would make the Left uncomfortable.  She was more than up to the task, as seen in the video below.  Alexandra, a New Yorker, decided to interview folks at the local welfare office within a block of her apartment stating: “It’s not as if I have to go too far to find the freeloading welfare queens.”  Those interviewed are bilking the system and Pelosi appropriately compared to them to other leeches, including some industries, that are living off the American taxpayer.

During the on-air discussion with Maher, Pelosi took her fellow Democrats to task for helping to create the entitlement mentality and chastising the mainstream media for the death of journalism.  She concluded that her Democrat Party is losing the working man that for many years was the center of the Party’s strength because of related issues.

While this Blog has previously posted videos from Maher’s show, the purpose was mainly to show how despicable an individual Bill Maher is.  The video below falls in the category of good journalism.  It is evident that Alexandra Pelosi has a clearer view of the world than her more famous mother, Nancy Pelosi.

Labor Unions Received Most of Obamacare Waivers

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 8, 2012

Obamacare is the huge government boondoggle promoted by President Obama that the President indicated would increase coverage for millions of Americans, while at the same time save money.  To buy this one has to believe in alchemy!

Not surprisingly, special interest groups balked on how Obamacare will affect their constituents and requested special waivers from the program.  What is surprising is that the majority of those being granted waivers are members of organized labor, one of President Obama’s.

The daily caller.com reported that last Friday, only after Washington shut down for the week, the government released the number of most recent waivers given for Obamacare.  Since June 17, 2011, over 540,000 labor unions members received waivers compared to only 69,000 nonunion employees.  Another indication of the backroom dealings with Obamacare is the report that 20% of all the waivers issued last May went to Nancy Pelosi’s district in California.

If Obamacare was truly good for Americans the Administration should not be issuing any waivers.  The fact that these waivers are mainly being issued to Obama supporters is a clear indication of the corruption of this Administration.
